Tuesday 8th May two of our Year 10 Park High students Oranus & Cameron took part in the Speak Out Challenge Harrow Regional Final, which was held at Whitmore High School. They were competing against 8 other student from various school in Harrow.
Jack Petchey’s “Speak Out” Challenge! is the world’s biggest youth speaking event! Jack Petchey’s “Speak Out” Challenge! is a programme run by Speakers Trust and funded by the Jack Petchey Foundation. They believe everybody should have the skills, confidence and desire to speak in public, and are dedicated to helping people of all ages and levels achieve this. Thanks to funding from the Jack Petchey Foundation, communication skills and training is provided by Speakers Trust – the UK’s leading public speaking charity; both students had taken part in a training workshop delivered by the Speakers trust earlier in the year.
Cameron and Oranus displayed fantastic confidence, courage, passion and oracy and we are very proud of their success. Cameron’s speech was about achieving your goals in the face of challenge entitled ‘Why Kites Fly’, Oranus was runner up with a speech entitled ‘The Unspoken Truth’, she was sophisticated, deliberate and understated in her delivery. This is the highest position Park High has achieved at this event. Well done to her!
